I often want to know how many votes (upvotes and downvotes) I've cast today, so as to know how far I am from the 40 vote limit.
In the old days, this information was easily accessible on each page by hovering over my name in the top bar. Sadly, this information disappeared. I now have to load my profile page in a separate tab and scroll down near the bottom, a marked regression in user experience.
To add injury to insult, this number is cached. I can't easily know how many votes I've cast, only how many votes I had cast as of an unspecified number of minutes ago. I've observed the cache to last more than one hour! The only reliable way to know how many votes I've cast (assuming no post that I voted on was deleted) is to switch to the activity tab of my profile and count the entries for today in the upvotes and downvotes subtabs. Yeech.
Please fix this significant user interface regression. Provide easy access to a reliable daily vote count (either the number cast so far, or the number I have left).
R, achievements can be accessed easily even when hidden. But I agree this is not a dupe, since the emphasis of this request is different.
